The movie

is "I´m No Angel" with Mae West. It is also obviously a dvd rip. The copyright status should be checked.

It´s the same with

which is the german silent movie "Die Büchse der Pandora" by Georg Wilhelm Pabst. The Film itself maybe PD in the US, but this is a dvd rip from a restored version.

I hope both movies can stay because they are true classics which deserve being here but I am afraid they have to be removed.
